DELPHOS — The ninth annual Marbletown Festival promises to bring something new and old favorites this year.

The committee is putting the final touches on the event that will run Aug. 8 and 9.

The event kicks off with a corn hole tournament (adults only) at 6 p.m. Friday at Garfield Park. Children will be kept busy with the annual Kid’s Cake Decorating Challenge at 6:30 p.m. at Delphos Wesleyan Church. Each child will be provided a 4-inch round cake, icing and decorations. Ribbons will be awarded. Adults can get in on the action with their own contest with awards for Best Tasting and Best Decorated (using a Marbletown theme).

WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Thursday ordered the IRS to explain under oath how it lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency’s tea party controversy.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing. Sullivan said he is also appointing a federal magistrate to see whether the lost emails can be obtained from other sources.
